Ed Reed After Winning Super Bowl: 'Get Me to Houston'

After helping Baltimore win Super Bowl XLVII, Ed Reed had his eyes set on joining his former college teammate Andre Johnson in Houston.

When the 2012 season ended, it was debated whether the Ravens should, or wanted to, bring back safety Ed Reed.

But where was Reed's mind at after the dust settled from a Super Bowl XLVII championship?

According to a tweet from the State of the Texans blog, Texans receiver Andre Johnson congratulated the longtime Ravens safety on winning his first Super Bowl title. Reed's response? "Get me to Houston."


There was probably more context to the situation that wasn't relayed to reporters after Tuesday's training camp practice. Though Reed told the Houston media his tenure in Baltimore was "set in stone," he understands the business aspect of the NFL. He likely knew the Ravens weren't going to offer the kind of money he wanted, or offer anything at all.

But it's apparent Reed isn't holding a grudge.

“There’s one thing I know, Baltimore is always going to be there,” Reed said, via CSNHouston.com. “It’s not going to float off the map. I can always go back. Do I miss it a little bit? Yeah, I miss certain things about it, but that’s part of life.”
